I’m still struck with the apprehension of women’s obsession with shoes. I have compiled some surveys and opinions and also some interesting quotes on the same. Have a read!
I came across a website which claims that an average woman owns 20 pairs of shoes and will have 470 pairs in her lifetime. And out of these 20 pairs, 5 are heels, 7 are sandals, flats, flip flops and wedges, 3 are boots and 5 are party wear.
Why do women love shoes so much?
Here is what different minds speak:
#Mood Swings– Psychologists have found out that dopamine, the neurotransmitter in the brain that releases the feel good factor we feel, goes up when we buy accessories, especially shoes. This high is similar to the feeling of people, who are on drugs.
Another interesting fact is that when women shop for shoes, a part of their brain, known as the collecting spot gets activated. This part actually provokes people to buy items they’re fascinated with, as it is with the case of women and shoes.

#Elevated Height – Another psychological aspect involved in buying shoes is having the feel of euphoria. It’s a mind set that height signifies power. High heels make women feel empowered as they look taller and more confident than before in their new pair of heels.
#Personality Enhances – With shoes, a woman’s body looks different. The wearer stands taller with her buttocks being prominent and posture improves even the walk.
Unknowingly, women tend to practice catwalk in their footwear.
#Mental Satisfaction – As they say, when feeling low, women tend to shop more. It makes them feel better that things are not as bad as they seem and when they’re able to buy a cute pair of footwear at affordable prices, they feel world is a better place.
I’ve also compiled some world famous quotations which explain why shoes are so important in a women’s life. Have a look!

“I see a pair of shoes I adore, and it doesn’t matter if they have them in my size. I buy them anyway.” ~ Kiera Knightley
